Error while booting


Dear all,

Please help. I am confronting with this error while booting the linux box
"No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/ssd_1/ssd1
followed by the following prompt; enter the root password
Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D to continue):"

After providing the password I tried with mount -o remount /dev/ssd_1/ssd1'

Still i am not able to boot the system.

ssd1 is a flash drive mounted and mounted entry is given at fstab. Earlier this was working without any issues.
Our OS is 5.5 OEL

Please help to troubleshoot this error.

Thanks
-Dave

Could you just tell me where is that drive was mounted and why you need that while booting?

generally the mount command is like this

mount -o remount,rw /path_to_mount_point

but you have given mount device name...!

Hi,

Thanks for your instant reply.

While starting the linux box thes error is visible "No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/ssd_1/ssd1
followed by the following prompt; enter the root password
Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D to continue):"

"mount -o remount "i tried as a workaround


Thanks

That means the device ssd1 is not getting detected by the kernel. It might have damaged or the name might have changed to something else other that ssd1.
